It's a shame, but it's true: the few bad apples grab most of the headlines. The vast majority of police are on the job for the right reasons. Working all kinds of shifts and situations to keep us safe. The responsibilities and risks are huge; the paychecks, not so much.
Well, tomorrow is the start of National Police Week. And the Newsroom PM team would love for you to share your POSITIVE experiences involving police or other law enforcement officers. Stories, video, photos. Whether it happened 10 years or 10 days ago, send what you've got.
Every day, there are quiet heroics taking place. We should know more about them!
Comments here are great - iReports* would be fantastic. Even if it's just you, telling your story to the camera. We'll be using them all week long in Kyra's shows.
(*if you send us something via iReport.com, please include the tags "Kyra" and "police" so we're able to find it easily.)
